    I would like to tell you a story of two characters living in solitude, never coming in contact with each other until the lines of separation get blurred. This is a tale of finding magic in the seemingly mundane and realizing that sometimes you don't see a void in your life until it's filled.

            Curta-metragem selecionado pelo programa Curta Criança do MINC e TV Brasil, livremente inspirado na obra de Manoel de Barros, exibido e premiado em festivais de cinema no Brasil e no exterior. Em um sítio, distante de tudo, vivem o menino Lucas e seu avô. O avô só sabe a língua do rio, dos bichos e das plantas. Lucas está cansado da rotina de pescar e das histórias inventadas pelo avô, que diz pescá-las no rio: palavra por palavra. Um dia, a mãe de Lucas vem buscá-lo para morar na cidade. Mesmo contrariado, o avô o encoraja a ir para aprender a falar língua de gente. Na escola, a nova língua não entra na sua cabeça. Não cabe. E pra piorar, ele começa a escrever uma língua inventada, só dele. Todos pensam que ele tem um parafuso a menos. Em seguida, sua mãe recebe a notícia da morte do avô. De volta ao sítio, Lucas corre em desespero na esperança de encontrá-lo, na ilusão daquela notícia ser uma história inventada. Mas não é. Desolado, ele se senta a margem do rio, e sem se dar conta, dezenas de palavras são trazidas pela correnteza. The Language of Things, an award-winning short film for children supported by the Brazilian Ministry of Culture and TV Brasil, inspired by the work of the poet Manoel de Barros. In a farm lives the boy Lucas and his grandfather. They don´t know how to read, but the grandfather knows the river´s and the plants’ language. Lucas is tiered of the routine of going fishing and listening to stories invented by his grandfather, which he claims to have fished out of the river, word by word. One day Lucas´ mother comes and takes him to live in the city. Even though the grandfather is contradicted, he encourages Lucas to go and learn the people´s language. At school the new language doesn't enter his head. And he starts inventing a language of his own. Everyone thinks he has a screw loose. Then his mother receives notice of his grandfather´s death. Back at the farm, Lucas runs in the hope of finding his grandfather. Desolated Lucas sits at the river bank and without realizing dozens of words are brought by the river´s current.

                ‘He Took His Skin Off For Me’ is an adaptation of the original short story by award-winning writer Maria Hummer. Its vision of the skinless man as a twisted modern-day fairytale is powerful, evocative and beautiful. Think Margaret Atwood meets David Cronenberg. Finalist for the driftless prize in Fiction.
